So, I survived my finals. This last quarter was the quarter from hell. And the last few weeks? I literally had no time do anything. I was hitting the books non- stop just trying stay afloat. Yeah, I could have taken it a bit more easy, but I'm one of those type A's who has to get that 4.0. I just can't allow myself to do less than I'm capable of. So, I stressed, big time.
Now it's over and I treated myself a bottle of Bailey's. No, not all in one night. :D
I have a 3 week break and then it's back to the grind. I can't wait until I'm done and working again. Life will be so much easier. Anyway....
It's that time of year again. I rather enjoy this time and I've been listening to Christmas music non-stop, to the bane of my husband's existence. Meh, it's only a few weeks of the year and I enjoy it. But unlike the rest of the world, I don't do shopping. I write a check and send it. So I'm Done!
OK, I did get my prezzie to me from the Mr. on Black Friday. I figured I deserved to get out after no power and the Mr. calling from Hawaii complaining about how hot it was. snort.
I've never done it before, dreading those awful crowds, but Santa (Mr.) was getting me an iTouch this year and there was a couple of really good deals on them, gift cards back and such. So I did join the throngs on that day. But I also copped an attitude and went out at 9 am instead of 4 am, so I wouldn't have to push and shove someone getting to that normally $5 item on sale for $4.50. snort. No, I thought I'll go out and if it's still available good, if not, oh well. Target had a boat load, lucky for me.
I can't wait until I can open my iTouch. I wanted it so I could read Kindle, Barns & Noble, and Stanza (Fictionwise) books on it, and with that new Bluefire app, I think I can read digital library books as well. Gives me way more reading options. Plus, I can get online and surf as well. Woot!
I noticed today that our hot ticket items have changed over time.
The Mr. and I went out to do our usual weekly food shopping and I saw some older DVDs for sale. I had a thought about how new technology has changed what I get for the DH for Christmas or want myself.
DVDs are no longer the fun or hot ticket item. Music, CD's are no longer desired items either. We have sets of Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, and tons of Asian martial arts movies all sitting there collecting dust, some even unopened.
I keep swearing that I'll get to that Catherine Deneuvue movie I got a couple of years ago, that I haven't watched yet. So... no more DVDs.
Last year I splurged and surprised the Mr. with a PS3. I got the PS3 because of particular game he wanted that was only in PS3. He's used it non stop for over a year now.
My favorite and still constantly used Xmas gift is my eBookwise. I'm sure I'll use the iTouch constantly as well for reading.
So what's the hot ticket items you're getting this year, either for you or your family?

I'd also like to share that the authors of Women and Words blog are having a 12 days of Christmas book giveaway from Mon. the 13th on. Every day, several books will be given away, so head on over and comment every day to win one.
And here is the list of books being given away. So many good authors!
I'm gunning for another Andi Marquette and or Ali Vali book myself. Or maybe a new to me author.
I'll try to get some reviews out during these three weeks, but as usual, they could be sporadic. I have to catch up on tons of house work stuff that I let go during school.
